Shabaka & The AncestorsWisdom Of Elders ... CD
Brownswood (UK), 2016. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
A fantastic jazz group from the contemporary South African scene – one who've got a very righteous vibe, and a sound that's maybe even more far-reaching than any jazz we've heard from that scene back in the 60s or 70s! The group's led by Shabaka Hutchings on tenor, but is a very ... read more CD
